Donald Trump’s Hitler Goof rallies have been drawing less and less interest lately, in part because windmill cancer has tragically taken so many of his rural devotees and also because Fox News no longer sees any benefit to broadcasting them. And why would they? His shtick never changes. It’s like watching...

Former Vice President Mike Pence, who likely spent more time wiping Donald Trump’s bottom than his own over the past half-decade, is now persona non grata in TrumpWorld, thanks to his brazen attempt to install Joe Biden as president simply because he’d won the election. One definition of chutzpah could...

So I may be burying the lede on this one—on purpose for once. The buried bit involves a bit of classic Trumpian projection that, sadly and predictably, ventures into the offensive. (Skip ahead if you want to see it. I’ll never know.) But first, let’s take a look at the most...

Ordinarily upon hearing something like this, I’d say Matt Gaetz has gotten in way over his head, but that would be physically impossible. I mean, look at that thing. Archaeologists still wonder how the Rapa Nui’s Easter Island ancestors moved those giant stone heads they’re famous for. I wonder the same thing about...

I used to occasionally argue with MAGAs before I realized I’d have better luck trying to convince Wile E. Coyote not to jump off the cliff in his Acme Batman Suit. He always jumps, and it always ends in disaster. I’ve never understood how you can spend more than a minute...

Fear and loathing rises in the land of previous guy. The raid on Giuliani’s apartment and office netted the Feds 10 devices, laptops and phones. According to the Trump adviser, the (Giuliani) raid ignited a sense of fear inside the former President's orbit that Justice Department officials may be more willing...

Previous guy always expects the loyalty of mob silence Omertà, even when he throws everyone under the bus, it’s part of his personality disorder. The real goal for his relative silence might be the return to social media when Facebook reconsiders their suspension. He has a Parler account but doesn’t use...

Feebs are closing in. Rudy’s electronic devices have now been seized in a NYC raid on his Manhattan apartment (and a Park Avenue office location). Darn that Deep State down by the Four Seasons Lawn Center. The buried lede is that the warrant was blocked under the former guy, but Merrick Garland unblocked...

After all the excitement surrounding the launch of Mike “MyPillow Guy” Lindell’s Frank Speech vanity project, things appear to have died down quickly. Earlier in the week, the site at least featured the collected works of the biggest ‘lection loons in the U.S., and there appeared to be a sign-up screen...

I can’t stop watching the MyPillow Guy, Mike Lindell, and his “Frank-a-thon” to launch his stupid new Arby’s dumpster of a website. The guy has been jabbering for the better part of two days. This morning, I tuned in to see him interviewing someone, but I never got the dude’s name because...

“A man responsible for Republican vaccine hesitancy wonders why he's being asked to promote getting vaccinated….. It is April 19, 2021, and Trump is still talking about Hillary Clinton and Christopher Steele on Fox News….  says he’s ‘beyond seriously’ considering a 2024 presidential bid” Fox News personality Sean Hannity asked Trump what...

I never took any business classes, but I can only assume Rule 1 of successful business-ing is to avoid challenging three of the largest and most entrenched tech companies on the planet when you’re basically just a mustache Gorilla-Glued to a Hefty bag full of liposuction fat and delusions.

I’ve never seen so many snowflakes in my life, and I grew up in Wisconsin. It’s still mind-boggling that so many Trumpaloompas thought they could storm the U.S. Capitol, openly engage in a violent insurrection, and then grab some Arby’s on the way home and chill with a box of Fiddle...

It’s time for another Schaden-Friday update on Mike Lindell, the ‘70s porn mustache who grew into a real boy through hard work, determination, and a generous dollop of unadulterated delusion. Today, on Steve Bannon’s online talk show The Wide World of Dorks, Bannon asked Lindell, who appears to actually believe the...

It really isn’t much of a surprise that the 2020 Trump Campaign organization used about every trick to defraud his supporters, especially the poorer and more naïve ones.

I happen to believe that if you send money to Donald Trump you pretty much get what you deserve.

Many times during his reign, Trump could have saved his presidency by taking moderate positions and co-opting the Democrats. He felt, however that he should obey his benefactors like a beta, whether it was the evangelicals and Russia, or Steve Bannon, Paul Manafort, and Mike Flynn. Even in the pandemic,...

I’m not a lawyer—simple country, unfrozen caveman, or otherwise—but I have to think that knowingly spreading lies about the one thing a company does, thereby shredding that company’s credibility in the eyes of millions of Americans, is kind of a big deal … and might just get you in a wee bit...

Remember that the Trump pardon will not protect Steve Bannon from NY prosecution on his multimillion-dollar border wall grift.

Vance Jr. (D), whose investigation of Bannon began shortly after...

As you listen to this, remember that Southern slave owners used the Bible to defend slavery for generations.  Also, NASCAR races are often held on Sundays.

What’s funnier than Mike Pence being sent to the doghouse after spending four-plus years as Donald Trump’s captive purse poodle?

Do these people think they’re going to turn to stone if they tell the plain truth about the 2020 election? Republicans these days act as if the Eye of Sauron is always looking, looking, looking, and if they dare mention Donald Trump’s name in vain, the Mar-a-Lago Nazgul will be...

Russia targeted people close to Trump in bid to influence 2020 election, U.S. intelligence says, in an apparent reference to Rudy Giuliani.

WaPo’s Greg Miller’s “main takeaway from ODNI report is that America’s enemies learned more from Russia-2016 about how to muck around in U.S. elections than the U.S. learned/did about how to stop it.” It didn’t stop Russia from trying to interfere again, although this time the Russians relied more on...

So this is the guy who’s suddenly an expert on voting machines and algorithms. Mike Lindell, the reason tech support people often drink on the job, called into the Domenick Nati Show recently to talk about … erm, something. Probably voter fraud, but who knows? He may have also been touting...

Because “something bad happened”, the Wall Street Journal has the criminal solicitation tapes: The anti-Slenderman wants you to overturn an election because who would believe that he’d suborn racketeering, or election fraud, or bribery.

Acknowledging Trumpian failures. Recall when Trump bragged that because of his “natural ability”, he could make medical pronouncements.

Plenty of dimwittedness to share as Trump demands via a cease and desist order that the GOP not use his likeness or name unless they pay for it. Also, Trump threatens to negative campaign against Lisa Murkowski in yet another empty threat. And finally Trump returns to NYC, the reasons for...

As much as I’d love to see Donald Trump in a prison cell, I’d like to see him in a dunk tank even more. I mean, the prisons are full. Let the carnival deal with him. Barkers and mountebanks are his kindred spirits anyway. And imagine being able to dunk his dumb...

For a brief interval following the Jan. 6 insurrection-palooza, I thought the conscience of our nation—and, by extension, that of the Republican Party—might finally be shocked into dropping the grotesquely irresponsible “this election was stolen from Donald Trump” canard.

GOP leadership is bitterly divided these days, over whether to marginalize the dyspeptic land squid who tried to violently overthrow our 244-year-old republic or to fully embrace him.

An initial note — I’ve always thought that the most effective tool by far against Trump is to mock him.  That weakness has been central to this rube from Queens who spent a lifetime craving Manhattan’s (unavailable) approval. With that in mind, I need to point out one of the weirdest (although typical)...

Trump never truly understood why Paul Manafort chose Mike Pence as his Vice President.

Trump got “betrayed” by Pence because he knew Trump would never really be able to deliver a...

If you’re a Republican and you don’t at least try to pretend the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump, you’re likely to be castigated—and maybe even censured—by a phalanx of zombie dead-enders in your own party. It’s a problem for Republicans who know better—and I can only assume Donald...
